Their Dragon Mate by Elle Boon ~ A Cursed All Hallows’ Eve Author Spotlight Interview

 

 

Blurb:

She’s always taken the path less traveled. They’ve always
barreled through roadblocks. Can they find a way to be together without losing
themselves? 

Lula’s a Fierce Dragon… She’s given bits of
herself to others when she was sure she had no mate of her own, even knowing it
would cost her life at some point.

Atika and Abyle, Twins with A Purpose… They
lived to protect their clan, until their brother took over as alpha. Just as
they think they can relax, they meet their truemate. A feisty dragon female who
runs from them.

The Triad Bond… Their beast won’t be denied,
but finding their little dragon proves harder than they’d anticipated. However,
once they bond with her, there’s no denying the love they share. What they
didn’t foresee was a stranger from Lula’s past coming for her and her mother.

Will the trio have a chance at happily ever after, or will
the Dragon King who lost his greatest treasures demand back, or kill who stands
in his way?

Get ready for an exciting return of some of your favorite
characters in this stand-alone…sort of “wink” story. You just might hear from
the Fey Queen, the bad boy alpha Kellen, and what would a reunionish story be
without #dontlookdown aka Creed.

Excerpt:

“Jenna, you realize I’m the alpha here, don’t you?”

“You realize you’re out-femaled here, don’t you?” Jenna
retorted.

“Both of you, shut it before I set your asses on fire,” Lula
growled. “Goddess, I just sounded like a wolfie.”

“That’s unacceptable. Be like a bear. We rumble.” Atika slid
next to her, his nose tickling her ear.

“Beary, I will—” her words died in her throat as Abyle moved
in on her other side.

“Boys, the three of you won’t fit through the door…or you
will, my bad.” Jenna laughed.

“What the flying monkey asses did you do?” Kellen roared, and
this time the liquor bottles shattered.

“Kellen Motherfucking Styles, I’m not cleaning up that
mess,” Laikyn yelled.

“Wolfies, stop yelling. Aw, look at my little wolfie
babies.” Lula hurried over to the little prison Laikyn had her sons corralled
in. “What kind of thing is this, and what did they do to be put in confinement?
Surely they can get out for good behavior?”

Lyric, the little female she loved like a crazy sister,
laughed from behind her. “It’s called a playgate, only it’s been shifterfied.
You know, for shifter babes.”

“I’m assuming that is a good thing?” Lula bent down to pick
up a little boy in each arm. The sound of two bears moaning made her blush.

“Son-of-a-fucking-dragonlovingbear,” Abyle growled.

“Down, boys.” Jenna patted Abyle, her touch like a mother
soothing a child.

“Um, Jenna, my dragon don’t like you touching them.”

Power flooded the room moments before two men, each holding
a little girl, entered.

“For fucks sake. What did I say about that shit?” Kellen
muttered.

“Temper temper, wolf.”

“Damien, didn’t I say to give me ten minutes?” Jenna asked.

“Your two crotch goblins wouldn’t wait.”

They all turned at the booming voice. Lula grinned, loving
the batshit crazy male, son of Satan and an angel.

“Creed, you probably shouldn’t refer to these two little
angels as crotch goblins.”

Creed pointed at Jenna. “That’s what she calls them.”

Jenna had a finger over her lips making a zipping motion. “I
mean, they kinda gobbled their way out of my vajayjay, and they gobble
everything they get their mouths on. Goddess, don’t glare at me with such censure
on your faces or no fucky fucky for you two.”

“Please make her stop talking, Damien, or you, Lucas.
Surely, one of you tops her,” Kellen growled while Jenna laughed.

“Keep on chuckling, but you’re leaking, so who gets the last
laugh?” Creed folded his arms with a nod.

“Dammit. See, what you’ve done? You brought them, and my
boobs wake up.” She stomped over, grabbing one of the little girls with a snarl,
smiling down at the baby.

“You’re not gonna whip a boob out and feed them here are
you?” Xan asked.

“Enough,” Lula roared. “This is not a circus show. Jenna,
take your babies and your boobs, and I don’t mean your mates, though they can
be boobs too, home to feed. Kellen, I’ll need the use of your office for only a
moment then I’ll take my err, mates to be, maybe, off somewhere else. Everyone
who is not a bear and or a dragon, exit the office. And that means everyone who
is not Lula, Atika or Abyle, get the fuck out of here. Now, please.” She tacked
the last bit on, so she didn’t hurt anyone’s feelings.

“Damn, our little dragon grew some balls. I like it.” Laikyn
said. She and Lyric high-fived each other as they turned from the entryway.

“Yeah, well, don’t take any notes from her. You can’t shift
into a huge-ass dragon and burn a forest down,” Kellen muttered before scooping
up his boys.

AUTHOR INTERVIEW

 

 Hello and welcome, readers! We have Elle Boon here with
us today. Elle, thanks for visiting us.

How long have you been a writer and how did you come to writing? 

Hi, and thank you so much for having me here. I’ve been writing for just over five years, or rather published for five years. In all actuality, I’ve only been writing for a little over six years though, which might seem crazy, but it’s true.

 

Tell us about your title featured in A Cursed All Hallows’ Eve: 

A Cursed All Hallows’ Eve: Their Dragon Mate is the story of my crazy dragon Lula who if you’re a reader of mine, you’ve met throughout my Iron Wolves and my Mystic Wolves series. She’s kinda popped in as a little side character who has helped the other characters out of situations. She’s always kinda been this larger than life, funny heroine who had wanted to write a story about but hadn’t found the right time to do so. About a year ago I was writing a story with a bear and one of my Mystic Wolves girls and Lula popped in and did a little thing (she’s a huge pink dragon and thought she’d never find a mate since she and her mama had been exiled from their realm before Lula had been born) so she gives little bits of herself to save her friends. Well, as she helps the latest heroine, she come face-to-face with not one, but two bears who set her world a spinning. I had no clue that was coming because I’m a punster when I write. So, I sat back and thought, holy shite, how am I gonna write a menage for Lula? Well, I sort of thought I’d do a chapter a month in my newsletter, but then life interrupted and then bam, this anthology came, and Their Dragon Mate flowed.

Lula and her guys are so perfect because she’s a pink dragon she needed more than your average shifter, she needed two bears who were also more than just grizzly bears. Of course, I’ll let you read to find out exactly what I’m talking about, but trust me, I made them…extra “wink.

 

How did you come up with the storyline? 

The story started when I finished writing Atlas’s Forbidden Mate in my Mystic Wolves series. However, I wrote this one as a stand-alone so that new to me readers wouldn’t feel as though they were lost.

 

What inspires you to write? 

I find inspiration in just about everything around me. For instance, my girlfriend’s dad who has passed away was a very funny and unique man. One day while we were parked next to one another waiting for our kids to get out of school I rolled down my window to chat with him as he sat in her van and heard him say “Tammy, this van is gotdamn offensive to my nose.” I took that little bit of conversation and put it in a story. I take ordinary things or parts of conversations, twist them, turn them, and make them more.

 

Tell us about your other books: 

I have over 40 other titles ranging from shifters, gods and goddesses, badass MC alphas, Navy SEALs, and contemporary. I love them all because they are all at the heart romance with the story revolving around the H/H. I always seem to have a conflict outside of the romance instead of the H/H. So, not like one of the soap opera novels LOL and you are always guaranteed a happily ever after with each one of my stories, never a cliffy or serial. And while I strive to write each title as a stand-alone, I do think once you are on say book 6 or 7 in a series, you will find they read better in order LOL.

My first book in most of my series are either FREE or set at $.99 so that readers can try one of my stories and see if they like my work and hopefully fall in love with my worlds. I do also tend to cross my paranormal people over into each other’s worlds, because I can LOL. But again, you can totally read the Iron Wolves without having to read the Mystic first and vice versa.

Hers to Bear by C.D. Gorri ~ A Cursed All Hallows’ Eve Author Spotlight Interview


Blurb:

Barvale might be home to one of the biggest Bear Shifter
Clans in the entire continent of North America, but shhhh…it’s a secret!

“Crazy” Maisy Daniels couldn’t leave Barvale fast enough
after high school. She’d earned that hated nickname after telling her classmates
she’d seen a boy change into a Bear just behind the football field! A social
pariah and the butt of every joke in her grade, it was no wonder she’d promised
herself to never step foot in that godforsaken town again.

But when her dad has emergency surgery, who else can help? Maisy
returns home to find things are a mess. The tractor is broken and there are only
a few hours until the Daniels Farm Annual Haunted Halloween Hay Ride &
Spooky Soiree begins. Unfortunately, the only repair shop open belongs to the
bane of her high school days, Arthur Lance himself. It’s time for Maisy to just
grin and bear it!

Arthur Lance just opened his third full service garage and automotive
repair shop in his hometown of Barvale, New Jersey. Business was going great,
but his Bear wasn’t satisfied with a job well done. The silly animal was still
pining for the one who got away back in high school. Burying himself in work was
the only thing he could do to keep his beast placated and his human side sane.

Maybe his fate is to be alone as punishment for hurting the
only female he’d ever wanted? His Bear can’t stand the thought. He’s stuck at
work on Mischief Night, when to his surprise he gets a frantic call from Maisy
Daniels herself. Finally, Arthur has another chance.

Will Maisy accept him as her fated mate when he
finally reveals the truth?

Excerpt: 

Her eyes widened when she saw what Arthur was about to do,
but wild horses couldn’t make Maisy look away as he pulled his sweatshirt over
his head to reveal smooth, bronzed skin. He seemed to be sweating, and he
grunted like he was in pain, grimacing and gritting his teeth hard before
pushing down his pants. She covered her mouth with her hands.

It wasn’t that she was seeing a naked boy for the first time
that had her so freaked out. Or the fact that said naked boy was one she’d
often daydreamed about. Nope. None of that was as frightening as what had
happened right before her eyes.

Arthur Lance, high school royalty, had crouched down on all
fours, panting and groaning, wait, was he growling? Holy smokes! Yes, he was
growling. He was like some kind of wild animal. Maisy gasped as she realized he
was getting bigger, and bigger, and, oh goodness, furrier. She bit back
a scream when he stopped writhing and grunting. The enormous, dark creature that
was Arthur Lance turned his glittering black eyes on her and chuffed out a cloud
of warm breath in the cool night air.

Holy crap! The boy she’d been crushin’ on had just turned
into a Bear!

AUTHOR INTERVIEW

Hello and welcome, readers! We have C.D. Gorri here with us today.
C.D. Gorri, thanks for visiting us.

How long have you been a writer and how did you come to writing?

Thank you so much for having me! I began publishing in 2014, but I have always wanted to be a writer. I went to school for English Lit and Creative Writing, but I have been a doodler and dabbler for years. Raising my children was very important to me so I waited until the youngest was school aged before setting about to get published. This is basically my dream come true. 


Tell us about your title featured in: A Cursed All Hallows’ Eve

Hers to Bear is the second in my Barvale Holiday Tales. The Barvale Clan is made up mainly of Black Bear Shifters in the fictional South Jersey town of Barvale, which literally means Bear Valley. Maisy left her hometown after being bullied in high school for claiming to see a boy turn into a bear, only to return years later to help her dad with their farm and wouldn’t you know it, that same boy still lives there! Halloween is a time for all sorts of magic, wouldn’t you say? Maybe even the kind that brings fated mates together.


How did you come up with the storyline?

This is a spinoff series of my Bear Claw Tales and Barvale Clan Tales which feature the Bear Shifters of Barvale and their mates. I wrote a Christmas short over the summer and knew immediately when I saw this anthology that I would write another one of these holiday shorts for this set. My story is lighthearted, romantic, and most of all, fun.


What inspires you to write?

Inspiration comes from so many sources for me. I find it in my husband, my children, a song, the tiny little day to day nothings that a million people go through but for some reason get stuck in my head. Hopefully I don’t foul it up too much when I put ink to my ideas.  


Tell us about your other books:

I started out writing Young Adult Urban Fantasy which then developed into Paranormal Romance. Now with over fifty titles published, I have to say I can’t even imagine a time when I won’t be writing. Most of my books are set in the same paranormal world and mainly take place in my home state of New Jersey. I call it the Grazi Kelly Universe in honor of my first heroine, Maria Graziana Kelly aka Grazi (grah-tzee). Characters and creatures overlap, but each series can be read alone.

Sometimes, I get to play in other authors’ worlds and each experience has been unique and has enabled me to write a broader cast of characters and scenarios. My thanks to those wonderful authors who opened the doors and let me in! You can find me in MT Worlds and Evel Worlds.

I like to write sizzling Shifter romance books that are sexy and fast-paced with epic heroes, sassy heroines, and guaranteed happy endings for all!

I’m a busy mom of three and finding time for leisurely reading is never easy, so I write stories that are fast-paced, yet detailed with satisfying conclusions.
